As much as I loved Bleed American at the time, I don't think I fully understood the significance of just how solid it was.

I mean, the title track followed up by this? Which was like, the fourth single from the album? Or was it a single? I don't even know.

Fantastic.

Damo Suzuki: So, um, yeah. Getting older isn't as bad as it sounds. Better than being young & poor (DjDrake) or young & slutty (SG) or young, poor and slutty (Paves); am I right?

Alright, my friends. It's time for another solid little rock jam

Jimmy Eat World are a quality band I mostly never think of, and I don't think I've ever heard one of their albums start to finish. That said, I totally wish I had a greatest hits compilation or something.

You need Bleed American aka Jimmy Eat World.

As far as '00s big guitar pop goes, only The Green Album beats it out.

I remember reading this on songmeanings.net a few years ago:

Actually, I love the way this song works... "The don't, don't let's start" comes from a really early They Might Be Giants single (Don't Let's Start) while the "Kickstart my rock'n'roll heart" is a paraphrase of "Kickstart my Heart" by Motley Crue, from the Dr Feelgood album.

For me, this song is about the inextricable link to what you feel and what you're listening to when you feel it, and the way we reach out to music for that connection. "I want to always feel like part of this was mine" seems to beautifully illustrate how we internalise our experience of music into something we can own -- like, just about everybody my age (29) has their special Violent Femmes moment, or their special Cure moment -- and probably somewhere secret, the Motley Crue moment... yeah well, I was a kid in love, OK... "Don't Go Away Mad (Just Go Away" seemed incredibly relevant to my life at the time and I can still remember every word of it.

IN SHORT, this is more than a rock'n'roll lovesong, this is a lovesong to rock'n'roll.

Imagine my disappointment when I found out that Jimmy Eat World wasn't the name of a solo artist.

my first ever big arena rock concert: Jimmy Eat World Tenacious D Weezer dear god that was a great show. thanks go to the people who bought me tickets. And, at the risk of board heresy, Jimmy Eat World probably had the best performance. But of course the crowd went far more apeshit for Weezer. Either way it was a great way to start going to shows regularly.

Wanted to go to this but I had to hang a bunch of paintings that night and I had no money anyway.

No, it'll be stupid, and we're already doing something stupid.

That video reminded me of the time I saw them for free and it semi-crushed my fandom for them, which was hard to swallow since Futures was surprisingly my favorite album of the year just two years before. Something about the band live just doesn't appeal to me.
